British luxury sports car maker Aston Martin plans to introduce one new super luxury car every year in the Indian market.While the company is now marketing the DB11, a new variant of Vantage model will also come soon.
The new two-door super luxury car DB11, which comes with 5.2 litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine and incorporating new design and technology, is expected to boost the company’s sales in India.
“Performance of Aston Martin brand has been good in India though the past three years were slow. But with the new car DB11, we expect the sales to see a boost. We have secured 5-6 bookings so far in India and expect the number to go up in the coming months,” Gaurav Parikh, Marketing Manager of Performance Cars, exclusive dealers of Aston Martin marquees in west and southern parts of India, told BusinessLine. Over the past four years, the company has sold about 70 cars in India as compared with other super luxury car brands’ cumulative sales of just 30-35 units.
Parikh pointed out that two key things of Aston Martin brand – adaptability and fits-all-age-group – sets itself apart from the competition in India.
“It perfectly suits the Indian road conditions. So the customers use it as every day car. Our cars have long period ownerships when compared with others. Going by the pre-owned super luxury car market, owners of other super luxury brands drive the vehicle for about 2,000-3,000 km and sell it after three years. But for us, we have only two or three owners who are willing to sell the car. Most of our cars in India have done 7,000-10,000 km,” he added.
The ex-showroom price starts from ₹2.5 crore. Rapide is its largest selling model in India accounting for a little over a third of its cumulative sales.
The DB11 is described as the most-awaited super luxury car. It attracted about 2,000 bookings internationally on the launch day as against normal level of 500-700.
OMG! This woman shares special bond with lions!!!
They treat her as the leader of the pride Or Lazmi grew up with a deep fascination with the wildlife. In particular, she was attracted to and enamored by lions. As a staff member at a privately-owned wildlife park in South Africa, Or has had the opportunity to bond deeply with four lions on the property. She played a large part in raising them from the time they were cubs, and in the video below, you can see her interacting with them.
They are all grown up now, but they still remember who was always there to nurture and care for them. In fact, these four lions consider Or to be the leader of their pride. She can comfortably approach each of them, and they will always run up to her and be by her side. She feels safe amongst them, and they feel the same with her. It’s an extraordinary relationship, and it’s one that you don’t see every day.
Trump Claims Obama Is “Behind” Protests Against Him And White House Leaks
“I think President Obama’s behind it, because his people are certainly behind it. And some of the leaks possibly come from that group.”
President Donald Trump has accused former President Barack Obama of organizing recent protests against him and other Republicans, as well as leaking information from the White House to the press.
In an interview that aired Tuesday morning on Fox and Friends, Trump was asked if he believed Obama was organizing recent protests across the country, including a series of raucous GOP town halls.
“I think he is behind it,” Trump replied. “I also think it’s politics.”
Trump said he believed Obama’s “people” are behind “some of the leaks, which are really very serious, because they’re very bad in terms of national security.”
Read the full transcript from that section of the interview here:
Trump addressed a number of other areas during the interview, including his proposed $54 billion of additional defense spending. He said that the money would come from a “revved-up economy,” adding that it would be a “whole new ball game” if he could increase GDP growth to “three or four percent.”
He also said he would “do things with other countries” where the US would “ask for a form of reimbursement” for military assistance.

Speaking of his decision to skip the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Trump was asked if he could name any instance where he thought negative press coverage against him had been deserved, having previously said he could take “hits” when they’re “fair.”
He responded: “I probably couldn’t do that,” before joking, “I’m not going to give you any ideas!”
He added that he would not be attending the dinner because he thought it would be inappropriate “in light of the fact of fake news,” and reiterated accusations that a parts of the news media had made up sources and stories when covering him.

The president also said his Twitter use isn’t “venting” and that he uses the medium, in part, to go around the “dishonest media” in an attempt to get his message out without his meaning being altered.
“I have so many millions of people, it allows me to give a message without necessarily having to go through people where I’m giving them a message and they’re putting it down differently from what I mean,” Trump said.
When asked what sort of grade the president would give himself for his work so far, he said that he’d give himself an A for achievement but in terms of getting his message out to the American people, he was probably at a C or a C-plus.

Trump has been vociferous in attacking media outlets he perceives to be hostile to him in recent weeks, and has branded a number of outlets “fake news”. However, he has been vocally supportive of Fox and Friends’ coverage, tweeting that it was “great” earlier this month.
